Much more of the continent of Thedas will be explorable in the new title, and with this comes new locations beyond those featured in Dragon Age: Origins and 2.
The developers mentioned noted that jungles, wastelands, forests and mountain tops will all be explorable in Dragon Age: Inquisition. The goal with the open world system is to create a sense of discovery, with “every little rock, every little bush” boasting something new.
The developers also went into a little more detail about the titular Inquisition, the organisation that the player controls.
As the leader of the Inquisition, players will have political power in Thedas, and this will apparently factor into the decisions the player makes. Bioware is again promising “repercussions” for the decisions that the player makes over the course of Dragon Age: Inquisition.
The developers also outlined a new “agent” system. Players will now be able to dispatch their agents to deal with events, without actually sending in their primary protagonist. Bioware did not go into detail about what the agent missions would entail.
